Ghostly Bike Ride



Hi - Welcome to our Design Team's Fall Blitz!  

This week on the Outside the Box blog, we will be featuring cards with a fall theme to coordinate with our current card contest.  You guys have been posting some amazing fall-themed cards in our Flickr group.  If you would like to see the current entries, you can find them here.  Keep up the great work!  You have until October 31st to upload as many fall-themed cards to our Flickr group as you like, and winners will receive the Memory Box die of their choice.


Time to gather your great Memory Box dies - old favorites and a couple from the 2013 Collection too. Jean Okimoto here - with a group of my favorites on a card that's sure to make someone smile on October 31st.P1120325Dies featured here are:

  • Small Debutante Frame 98430 (Licorice Distressed Dots Signature Pattern)
  • Debutante Frame 98297 (Mango Cardstock)
  • Brand New Bicycle 98404 (Mango Cardstock)
  • Batty Border 98694 (black felt)
  • Ghastly Ghosts 98701 (white cardstock)
  • Ghost Trio 98736 (white cardstock)

Just for fun, I've mummy-nized the biggest guy of the Ghost Trio with the Blank Ticket G1780 and ColorBox Wicked Black Archival Dye Ink.  Attach scraps of Licorice Cardstock behind the ghosts for eyes and mouths.

Stamp Hanging Out with My Ghoul Friends B1976 on the inside with ColorBox Pumpkin Pie Archival Dye Ink.

Everything is attached to a Licorice Notecard - then sent on its way in a matching Licorice Envelope.  Use scraps of Mango Cardstock to create address labels.

View the entire collection of Memory Box dies, stamps and papers.  


Here are the details of our card contest - we'd love to see your designs!

 Card Contest Rules:

From Saturday, October 5th- Thursday, October 31st, upload and enter as many cards as you like to our Flickr group with your interpretation of our theme...."Fall Cards." You could make a card for Halloween, Thanksgiving, Back to School, Football, etc. The choice is yours!  All we ask is that you use at least one Memory Box die or stamp on your card. We will choose three winners to highlight on the Outside the Box blog on November 1st, and each winner will get to select a Memory Box die of their choice. Please be sure to add your creation to our group and tag it "MBfall2013." Good luck!
